The Art of Urban Exploration

The Art of Urban Exploration | research | Scoop.it
By James Nestor {bull} Photographs by Matt Mallams What drives people to climb around in mine shafts, nuclear missile silos and abandoned sugar refinieries? Unlike other adventurers, such as rock climbers or spelunkers, urban explorers shun the natural world in pursuit of more closely examining and understanding the inner workings of our constructed world, of seeing civic society in its real, raw, unpainted, unplastered and unprettied state. Which was exactly why I was shoving myself under a chain-link fence and into a broken window on the ground floor of a radiation-polluted former Navy building on a warm Wednesday night in June. Through a catacomb of blown-out rooms covered in spooky graffiti and rodent droppings, we emerge into the building's grand foyer, a sweeping acres-wide room surrounded by three-story-high glass curtain walls. Some rooms are largely intact - personal employee files spill out of rusting cabinets; "Top Secret" manuals grow mold in doorways. "Anything spray-painted orange means it was checked with a Geiger counter for radiation - whether it passed or not, I'm not sure," Tunnelbug says as he follows me through two piles of typewriters - all painted orange. In an electric control room opposite the fourth floor, fist-size buttons line a wall, each boasting baffling and somehow frightening names like "Gyro Supply Switch," "Current Ammeter" and "Phase 2, 3." Tunnelbug points to a huge dock and crane to the south, explaining that this is where the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory brought several ships that had returned from nuclear weapons tests at the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The history of "hacking"Though the name urban exploration was coined in a 1996 edition of the fanzine Infiltration, people have been adventuring behind the walls, roofs and stairs for long as cities have existed. Back in the United States, MIT students led excursions into steam tunnels and rooftops around campus in the late 1950s; they called their practice "hacking" - a term that decades later was adopted into techie parlance. With the growth of the Internet in the early 1990s, urban exploration's popularity exploded, generating hundreds of Web sites, and, for the first time, allowing members from around the world to exchange photographs, information and tips on how to get into sites. With black sweatshirts and headlamps, standing in a loose semicircle near a dirty pickup, the group of 10 wasn't hard to spot amid the crowds of cowboys and high schools students that had gathered on Friday night. Daniel Ketchum, a 19-year-old civil engineering student at Cal Poly, opens a small steel door with a wheel on its center, turns and says: "There's a step down here; just follow me." Hermetically sealed and constructed entirely of steel, the silos inhibit even the slightest amount of air, light or sound from coming in or out. Because sound has nowhere to go, it bounces around the curved walls, creating a disorienting delay-effect. On the television, the local public access channel was airing a program called "Faces of Meth," which looped grotesque before-and-after photos of methamphetamine-abusing local people along with perky pop gems cribbed from a local radio station. "There are pretty much an endless number of places to discover," he says, sitting on a 40-year-old plastic foam block on the third-floor refrigerator room. Tunnelbug explains that the factory in which we're sitting was closed four decades ago after two women in Detroit died of botulism from tuna that was packed there, causing a nationwide panic that devastated the industry. In an attempt to regain public confidence, the government confiscated all tuna packed at the plant and buried it beneath 10 tons of garbage in a dump next to Candlestick Park. Rust paints steel doors in multicolored patinas; ivy envelops offices and break rooms like a clenched fist; feral cats rest in vents. "Last time I was here, in that corner, next to a bunch of needles, there were these negatives of a wedding, a bunch of pictures of this guy and his wife together," he says with a nervous laugh. Tunnelbug explains similarly unfortunate discoveries, like finding a soiled diaper hundreds of feet down at the bottom of a Titan nuclear missile site in Colorado. "The air was so polluted with benzene and diesel gas - you couldn't even breathe in there without a respirator - and someone was living there!" And then there was the time he happened upon 2,000 antique chest X-rays in a mining town in the Rocky Mountains. Dry rot, fire damage, razor-sharp rusted nails and unstable earth are constant menaces at most abandoned sites. In a modern society so buffered and baby-proofed with guardrails, signs, tour guides, maps, safety lids, safety bars and safety belts, relearning these basic self-reliant survival skills for urban exploration is scary, and doesn't come easy. The epicenter of the mine is illuminated by a single shaft of natural light that streams in through a collapsed hole in the crust of the hill above us. With a clearing of his throat, Ketchum turns on his light and in a low, raspy voice asks: "How many places in the world today can you go that are this dark and this quiet?" He turns and begins his ascent back outside.
